or friend, there's been enough of them that virtually everybody, all of us know someone who's had it cancelled and demand they explain what the heck they thought they were doing and difficult for them to defend the law right now so i think the more that they get pressed, look, one example, dianne feinstein went back home recently, came to washington and said she is signing on to senator mary landrieu's bill to force the companies to continue these insurance policies -- she's from a safe seat. she must have really got it in the neck in california and that's going to happen. >> you have these democratic fixes and have democrats admitting there are mistakes but that we've got the fixes that will work. are constituents going to believe them? >> those are exactly what you suggest. they're cover. so the landrieu bill which would require insurers to kin offering the bill and kay hagen that would extend enrollment. people are realizing they won't work. democrats did such a phenomenal job of destroying the insurance markets there are no quick fixes and can talk about it but they can't comp
be in danger of using her oncologist. >> right, just very limited choices in the exchange's narrow networks. so this person wrote, for example, in the exchange policy, she couldn't go to m.d. anderson. >> houston cancer center. >> renowned cancer center in texas. so it really just disrupted her care for a stage 4 cancer patient. and we're seeing that nationwide, state to state, not just california. >> i think the democrats, senate democrats have to break here, before the president would even consider any substantive changes. you agree with that? >> i think so. he's going to have to be under tremendous pressure. really, as joe was suggesting, this law is structured in a way that's going to make it very difficult to revise or break apart at this stage. >> it will either be a delay i think or nothing much is going to happen. when we come back, new jersey votes for chris christie again. what can the republican party learn from his re-election? i'm beth... and i'm michelle. and we own the paper cottage. it's a stationery and gifts store. anything we purchase for the paper cottage goes on our ink car
